Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours and orangish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is very malty with some corn. The flavor is malty with some sweetness, but the corn is still there. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a rusty amber with a small passive white head. Itís gone before you know it! Aroma seems faint. Light fruit, perhaps, and a mild maltiness. It barely has an odor. The slightest loss of your olfactory senses would render this the beer odorless. Taste is a bit better. Some floral notes, more fruit and a pleasant maltiness attempt to balance it. Itís actually pretty flavorful for 4%. Body is a bit thin and somewhat carbonated. Finish is more fruit and malt. Thinned, however. Lacks a decent finish. Not horrible though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear bronze with a dense soapy beige head. The aroma is bready with a bit of toast, lager roundedness and a touch of dry caramel. It has a fairly light crisp body with a mild amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with dry caramel, some spice, crackers and a hint of minerals. The finish is very short lasting with a hint of hops and mild fruit. Decent.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose is fairly dry and toasty with some light graininess and husky malt. The flavor is pretty dry, which is nice, but thereís a dusty graininess throughout that is a bit of a detractor. The finish is equally husky and grainy. Thereís a slight undertone of crystal malt throughout thatís a bit of a problem for me as well. I think that this could do with a little more sweetness and body. Dry mouthfeel with soft fizzy carbonation, quite a bit of graininess. The more I have of this, the more I dislike it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Filtered amber-copper body. Thin, off-white head. Malt centered, not much a hop balance. Medium bodied, lighter than most amber lagers. The aroma is a little unappetizing, earthy and stale. Drinkable, but definitely wouldnít want a sixpack.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled on March 8th - yea, Iím drinking a winter lager in late spring - whatís it to you, huh? - pour is amber with a light haze - nose is lightly estery, with moderate husky graininess, toffee - a bit watery in texture and thin in body - carbonation is moderate and beefs up the mouthfeel somewhat - flavor is somewhat dry, with a lot of the huskiness from the aroma, a touch of roasted nuts - a touch of spiciness on the tail end - not that good, but not as terrible as some of the ratings suggest.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 12/23/12, Bottled 11/16/12
Aroma: The nose has caramel malts, some doughy notes, earth, and a little paper
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish-orange color with a foamy beige head leaving medium-heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly malty, with a medium sweetness, and a light earthy hop bitterness
Palate: It is light-medium, has a nice, clean feel, average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Weirdly, Iím on my 3rd straight Reddish beer of the day (not intentional, even though itís Christmas Weekend, it must just be a case of them all being Winter seasonals). Anyway, this is a decent beer, but nothing stands out for me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crisp deep amber coloured body with pungent ruby highlights and a two centimetre tall tan head with a lot of movement in the body. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, nuts and a hint of earth - not too much there. Light-bodied; Sharp toasted malt notes with a little earthiness, some light sweet toffee flavours and a hint of grass and herbal notes. Aftertaste relatively light with the malt and a little sugar coming through. Overall, a pretty underwhelming beer with a good malty flavour, but not much else and not really worth trying. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 07-February-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 16-February-2013.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber to copper color. Modest, but stable ecru head. Grainy, malty, bready scents. Just a hint of herbal hops. Mostly malty flavors with toasted and caramel malt. Light sweetness lingers through to the end. Could use a touch more hopping, but nt a bad amber lager (something Iím usually not real keen on).
